Studying law is not easy, and no other courses is easy either, but there is nothing you cannot achieve if you put your all into it.

Life Sciences

Like Engineering, anything life science falls under the subject group: Biology, Chemistry, Physics.

These 3 subjects were my favorites while I was in secondary school.

The 3 became my favorites because I took their classes serious which made me enjoy each class. And with enjoyment comes love. It is always easy to learn about what you love because most difficult works are difficult because of lack of interest. And with love comes interest.

If you don’t believe that, think about your favorite game or sport. Do you find any difficulty when you learn about the game or sport?

Try and love what you choose. Remember this is part of your future and the effort you put now will never go in vain.

Social Sciences / Management.

There are 3 subject groups for any courses in this department.

You have: 1. Economics, Government, Mathematics. 2. Mathematics, Geography, Economics. 3. Accounting, Economics, Business Studies.

Not everybody likes maths and not everybody believes that maths is difficult, it all depends on your part of view. And as you have read above, the love you have for something is important. Aside being easy for you to learn about what you love. You will easily spend ours doing what you love without even knowing. And the more time you spend on a task, the better you become.

Physical Sciences

If you are the type that hate your physics teacher while in secondary school, I know some of my friends that do, the first 3 letters Phy is enough to chase you away from the physical sciences department.

But kudos to you if you are not so good in physics and you still choose to study a physical science related course at the university. You can be good at physics. It might even turn out to be your best subject if you are willing to treat it as your love. Yes, your love. Spend some time with your physics textbook. Report what you don’t know in it to your physics lecturer like a husband reports his wife to the mother-in-law.

What I am saying is this, invest you time in the subjects you take at the JUPEB center if you want to pass the JUPEB exam with good grades.

There are two subject groups for Physical science related courses in JUPEB. 1 Physics, Mathematics, Geography. 2 Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry. You can see that physics exist in the two subjects. So don’t joke with your physics textbook and class.


A truant secondary school student can guess that biology will be among the required subjects for any of these courses. Yes, biology is there but truancy will not help you in your JUPEB program.

Attend all your classes and have a good timetable to study on your own. Don’t play with any of your subjects. Always remember that some of your secondary school colleagues are already in the university. JUPEB gives you the chance to meet up with them. Don’t waste the chance. Take your chance by studying hard and far.

The required subjects for Medicine, Pharmacy, and Nursing courses are Biology, Chemistry, Physics.


Because teachers are important people in our society, JUPEB has given the grace to choose from any subject groups all the departments mentioned above.

You know that I am joking right?

If you don’t know, believe it. It is still the same.

You can become a teacher in any department. Just pick the required subject combination for that department. Simple.

That concludes the article on JUPEB course. I hope you have found the course you want and you have known the subject combination. Remember that English will be the fourth subject in all subject combination. Also remember to study as hard as possible, your future self will appreciate it.
